The Mobile Convenience Store

UK-based Benjy's Sandwiches is taking the lunch truck concept to the next level, outfitting Benjy's Delivered "vanchise" vans that unfold to sell virtually any type of food.

The vans can serve worksites, catered events and other locations without requiring external power. Benjy's Delivered vans typically serve sandwiches, hot food, hot and cold drinks, salads, fresh fruits, snacks and desserts. The vans also appear neater and cleaner than the typical mobile lunch truck, making them more appealing to discerning customers.

Vans such as these can serve all kinds of temporary locations efficiently and economically. With disaster relief on our minds recently, they could even be used in emergencies to serve groups of displaced persons.
